I think what makes The Twilight Zone so timeless is it's brilliant social commentary. Aside from the threat of nuclear war, all the themes still remain current.

Just look at Number Twelve Looks Just Like You. Nearly 50 years on the point of that episode remains true to this day. Incredible when you think about it.

Even Eye of the Beholder has some themes that can carry into today's society.

What makes The Twilight Zone so clever however is that it wasn't every episode that was laden with social commentary. Because Serling and his team sloted them in within episodes that were there to entertain, a regular audience member wouldn't notice the sub-text and will find it an enjoyable show.

Fan of The Twilight Zone? Then check out The Collector's Room - a sci-fi series in true Twilight Zone fashion.
